CORVALLIS - Benny Beaver will soon be hitting the road across Oregon.
The likeness of the Oregon State University mascot appears on a new specialty license plate now available from the Department of Motor Vehicles.
"We've worked with DMV for about five months to bring the new OSU group plates to life," said Bob Bruce, OSU executive director of communications and marketing. "We think they'll be extremely popular among alumni, students, parents and Beaver fans throughout Oregon."
The new OSU plates can be ordered at any DMV office. They are available for passenger vehicles, motor homes and travel trailers.
Total costs vary depending on use for initial registration, renewal or replacement. Those costs will include a $32 per pair surcharge as part of the educational group plate program.
Funds from the surcharge collection will be returned to OSU to be used in support of the university's student scholarship program.
